Welcome to SWKLS Things!

Over the next 12 months, we’ll be learning 6 new things!    For those of you that participated in 23 Things Kansas this program will be similar, but we’ll only be focusing on one topic at a time.    All of the topics will be online on the SWKLS website.

Each lesson will be posted online around the first of the month starting in January.  You’ll have until the last day of the month at 11:59 pm central time to complete each lesson and receive 2 hours credit.

Who can participate?
